Amazon expects to invest approximately $4 billion from April to June on COVID-19 initiatives to get products to customers and keep employees safe. This includes spending more than $800 million in the first half of the year on COVID-19 safety measures, with investments in personal protective equipment, enhanced cleaning of our facilities, less efficient process paths that better allow for effective social distancing, higher wages for hourly teams, and developing their own COVID-19 testing capabilities.

Some of the precise numbers so far are:

  • Provided 100 million+ masks to sites
  • Added 2,298 handwashing stations
  • Added 5,765+ janitorial staffers to our typical teams
  • Provided an additional 34 million gloves
  • Added 48 million ounces of hand sanitizer
  • Added 93 million sanitizing spray and wipes
  • Procured more than 31,000 thermometers and 1,115+ thermal cameras
